TWAS serious, South Gosford FC, The Drive Bys, & the BT’s and to some extent the LT’s get decision and it appears the refs are scared to make a mistake when in charge of there games about them.

Some years ago we were playing South Gosford FC, and had a player sent off for a slide tackle on the wing, less than two minutes latter a far worst slide tackle on the other wing was not only not penalised but the foul when against us as both players went down…

AS I said the Jest equally cope it in the neck…

Wellington Phoenix get screwed every week and nobody cares

Sorry Fad, not Jerks…. The Jest … that’s got the spelling right… 😛 😛

I disagree with the theme of the article.
To support s top national side you need a strong and visible domestic competition.
Super Rugby passed it’s use by date some time ago. Before it’s too late and or enough people are willing to invest big dollars into Australian rugby a new and locally based national domestic competition is essential.
Football has just had a three to four year civil war and torn itself apart to create better systems. The cost to date are high but the recovery and rebuilding is in full swing.
IMO rugby needs a similar civil war where those in control of out dated legecicy systems are replaced better with managers & systems.

It's time to go all out for Eddie as Wallabies coach

Mike the Mariners & Jerks constantly cope it in the neck as well….

South Gosford FC get away with murder I am not sure the Nix cope it any worst than the Mighty Mariners or Jest…

Ever hear of the word ironic or maybe a better word hypocrite….. you said or said emphasis on IMO…. everything you post is you’er opinion… typical of modern day arguments take the worst part of what you argue and that the other person is doing it…

How ironic for a poster who constantly expresses their opinion to attack someone else for having an opinion …

I think you should go back to AFL school… you’er task is to abuse, criticise, and confuse … and you are failing in this task…

Matildas' equal-pay reports capture football's optimistic outlook - and the PFA's crucial role

Tyke

No idea what you do for a living…. but if you cannot see the commercial upside of this deal I can only assume you are not in a business planning position…

I will explain a little, and hopefully it will explain.

National teams, have generally 6 levels of income.

Media / broadcast deals
Crowds
Merchandise sales
Governments buying key matches i.e. AFL grand Final, NRL grand finals & SOO.
Government funding
Sponsorship’s

FFA cannot sell the broadcast as all meaningful matches are controlled by AFC.

In all other areas, goodwill & PR are essential … so IMO sponsorship’s will increase, merchandise sales will increase, government investment in especially Matilda matches will increase, and government funding across junior team development will increase… and crowds will also increase …

Hope this helps ….

good and congrats to the young man

Off topic, but sharing what I found interesting financial article about a sport investment company…

Thought you guys may find the article interesting and have copied part of it below…

Bruin currently has nearly $1 billion invested. It has significant stakes in six companies whose operations include stakes in companies across the modern sports landscape, from sports media start-ups like The Athletic to a live-event provider selling high-end trips to events like the Super Bowl and the N.F.L. draft.

The guiding philosophy of Bruin’s investments isn’t a proprietary insight. It’s borne of the observation that people under 40 watch and consume sports and media in radically different ways from their parents.

Brilliant decision… this will pay huge dividends into the future…. tis a shame many posters especially on the other thread and on some Football forums,are so lacking insight they fail to see how in a commercial sense this is massive money earner for Football…

Besides IMO the huge commercial dividends that will follow, this is about equity, and being a pace setter …

My only concern is the 40% …. to me seems a tad to high … but the idea of equal sharing of combined revenue brilliant …

You don’t have to pay all the cap, there is a minimum spend you can make and we only spend that…. most spend to the cap …or over the cap

Will this be the most entertaining A-League season in years?

WU have an excellent coach… and that helps a lot…

Will this be the most entertaining A-League season in years?

Mike, another good article…. and huge congrats for staying positive the vibe will in time pay huge dividends it will take time but it will work…

Mike and others, on the Mariners forum we are discussing among other things our current midfield which I think is arguably the best in the league today… Alen Stajcic as I posted above is impressing everyone with his not only technical coaching but his player management and his development of squad squad unity..

By quite a measure the smallest budget, and we lack a quality striker but I think Jair the Jerks cast off will be very successful and my understanding he is signed we are just waiting on visa clearances..

I have posted below or sorry copied a post on the Mariners forum, and its about Jair coming and our style of play… OK to explain Muzz is Jordan Murry our other striker .. Nizzy is Joshua Nisbet a very young talented attacking mid from our youth squad…weeMac is McGlienchey … DDS well everybody knows who that is…

Hope you enjoy and it was in reply to someones posts so the start tis a bit hard to understand…

I get what you’re saying, but I actually think Jair and Muzz could slot really well into how we set up tonight.

Muzz is selfless, works hard, links well and I still believe is a quality finisher – unfortunately he does not have the pace, strength of feet required to truly distinguish himself at HAL level as a lone striker from what I’ve seen so far. But to a 433 like this… he’s much better suited and could be great for us I think. And Jair has much better feet than our other strikers and also knows how to finish and pass.

Our biggest issue tonight was that once our forwards tired we struggled for field position and possession which was exacerbate by having no real nine to hold up the play and help get us up the park. Without DDS we could not keep the ball. I think Nizzy. actually would have helped with this. But so could Jair, so I still think he could be a vital asset. We’re still very light on attacking depth. Weemac does not work for how we’re playing at this pace anymore. And Matty… while great for tonight’s situation is ill suited to how we have proven we should set up.

Michael called it a while back (or was it insertnamehere?) sorry I’ve forgotten. But anyway point was that our key talent was probably better suited to a 433 with a false nine. That was proven tonight imo. And by keeping Matty on the park, has it looks meant we have not been using our most effective formation.

Also big shout out to all our defensive players too, forced so many turn overs and really gave our forwards a constant supply of ball in the first half. They also made some good runs and Stensness and Duric in particular helped start many a foray.

I know it’s been said a hundred times already. But what a great performance that was.

Will this be the most entertaining A-League season in years?

Alen Stajcic, could just be this seasons best signing….

Some people on the Mariners forum have gone to training and regularly go … they have been saying for months now how good a coach he is and according to them its his attention to detail and his firmness …. he has the players totally believing in him and they will run through brick walls for him…

Nothing like in fact light years away from the stories coming out of FFA…

Will this be the most entertaining A-League season in years?

Fad great post

Mike spot on

👍 👍 👍 👍

Dump the doubters: The A-League needs Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Lovely story well written and thanks for writing such a clever article

Are the Western Sydney Wanderers the real deal?

thanks for that link and i used to stream Justin TV yonks ago

The Sydney derby was as good as any game in Europe

Nem & Mike

Off topic, but appreciate your reactions to the following snip-it included in a much larger article on the Fairfax site… as its something you have both foretold or say mentioned is the way to go…

Mike you have mentioned this I think in relation to Japan, and would it be better than Fox, with a Football team behind it…. and Nem you have been saying there are people sniffing around… pertaining to this…

https://www.smh.com.au/sport/soccer/derby-needle-babbel-gets-wanderers-tattoo-ahead-of-showdown-20191024-p533wc.html

A new player could be about to emerge on the A-League’s broadcast landscape in the not-too-distant future. Multiple industry sources are aware of recent murmurs from DAZN – pronounced ‘Da Zone’, apparently – who appear to be positioning themselves for a possible bid for the rights to the competition.

DAZN is an over-the-top streaming platform – much like Kayo Sports – which is owned by the Perform Group and available in a selection of European countries, plus Japan, Canada and the United States.

Football appears to be their major strategic priority when launching into a new market.

For example, much of the cash splashing around in the J.League at the moment is sourced from a deal signed with DAZN worth nearly $3 billion over 10 years, which began in 2017 and covers the domestic rights for Japan’s top three divisions.

DAZN does not have a presence in Australia just yet, but there is a job posting on their website for an advertising sales executive in Sydney, and A-League identities are aware they are “sniffing around” the domestic football scene here.

That suggests that if and when DAZN’s service is rolled out here, A-League rights could be part of their initial offering to consumers.

Given there are four seasons left to run on the A-League’s current contract with Fox Sports, DAZN would need to either cool their heels until 2023, or put forward a proposition strong enough to convince all parties to move away from the status quo.

Given the rapidly-evolving nature of sports broadcasting these days, it’s worth watching this space.

The Sydney derby was as good as any game in Europe

I went to the derby that time it was played at Homebush when they got over 60K..

I loved the WS chant of…… something off East Sydney… and the constant East Sydney reference I loved…

The Sydney derby was as good as any game in Europe

Craigo

Mate there are whole areas in Western Sydney especially South Western Sydney where its Football first and daylight second to the next code…

Go look at the shirts that are being on peoples back and countless are from European Football clubs….

Footballs biggest competition in Western Sydney is not NRL or AFL its European & South American teams…

You may or may-not find this stat interesting, recently a survey was carried out which showed only 12.25% of people who play Football in Australia actually watch the A-League… whereas across the NRL / AFL & Rugby the average is 86% of those who play watch local leagues…

Further there is roughly 24.5 % of people who play and are Football first who don’t watch the A_league…

So the A-League if you take the other codes average of 86%, has roughly 74 % of it player base that does not watch the A-League…. of that 74% … 24 .5% are very much into Football but not the A-League…

One day, someone will solve the riddle on how to connect Australian Professional Football to its player base … its the reason why so many AFLers in particular are always putting it down…

The Sydney derby was as good as any game in Europe

Mike

Agree with your entire article.

What many outside Western Sydney don’t appreciate and unless experienced its difficult to appreciate….. but in Western Sydney Football is the uncrowned sports number one code… player numbers combined with a large percentage of the population having quite a detailed knowledge of Football provide a confidence to their crowds unlike any other area of Australia.

Only Newcastle has a similar heartland background….

AS for the negative nellies that bemoan all things or most things…. I do wonder if they are attention seeking keyboard warriors … however because we lack a strong mainstream media they get more attention than they deserve…

That header by Duke was an amazing bit of timing ….

Nem

Issue is and IMO its the elephant in the room no one wants to talk about… people born in the 70’s who played in the GG who had Football loving parents, mostly parents came from mostly Football nations in Europe or South America… since the 80’s there has been a demographic shift from Europe to Asian & Middle Eastern Nations, where sport is as important as say education and with Indians they prefer cricket.

Further those migrants of the 50’s & 60’s brought great knowledge which they passed on in local parks and grounds…

Sydney derbies, Caitlin Foord and Matt Simon entertain, Archie Thompson does not

Personally I hope Matty S is dropped from our squad, he is the perfect of the player who played a couple of years past their use by date…. retire with them saying “”” he was a great retired to soon”’ rather than he’s a “”has been”

Sydney derbies, Caitlin Foord and Matt Simon entertain, Archie Thompson does not

Should be a great match

The A-League finally has a derby to rival Europe
